>> rose: welcome to the program. tonight, a conversation with piers morgan of cnn. >> honestly, piers, i think this is the wrong night to be doing this and i really wish you waited to have this segment until after the funerals. this is a time in colorado and nationally when it would have been better to have more of the se segments like you did before with the family and when people could be unified in helping the victims. >> let me challenge you on what you just said. a lot of people have said that today, a lot of people who don't want strengthening gun control have said, "this is not the day to debate it." i'll tell you the day to debate it would have been yesterday to prevent this from happening. i think all journalists at their best ride the crux, sp of acceptability. journalism is a rough business. to get to the truth what i lot of people in public bodies are lying and obif you skating, sometimes journalists have to play dirty, too, and to pretend otherwise i think is ridiculous. the mirror in my time i believe operated legally but operated right on that line. we drove very

white house strategy. eight is throughout the campaign. how many interviews did cnn get with president obama? zero. how many did the people who really know him again? how many interviews did drive time radio get? tavis: he has been on 60 minutes a dozen times. that is his favorite outlets. that is their track record, asking the tough questions. >> in the beginning of the second term, nobody wants to upset the relationship with the white house. i had conversations with journalists who told me there is so much they cannot write or say because they will lose access, and that is always the case. there is always something you cannot say or write. you always want to get as close to that line as possible. you want to oust the tough questions. you cannot orient about access. -- you cannot worry about access. tavis: how is our democracy and who served by journalists afraid to ask the right questions because they do not want to lose access. >> i do not think it is served at all. it is these celebrities station of politics. -- celebritization of politics. it is easier to go along with that. it is

ignoring basically the -- >> you recently wrote for cnn colorado "food stamp president." i want to play a clip from the january republican debate when fox is moderator questioned newt gingrich about his food stamp comments. >> you refer to president obama as the food stamp president. it sounds as if you are seeking to the little people. [boos] >> first of all, juan, the fact is, more people up and put on food stamps by barack obama than any president in american history. [applause] heineman the politically correct or not supposed to use facts that are uncomfortable. >> that was newt gingrich being questioned by fox news juan williams at a presidential debate. walter mosley, your response? >> this interesting, at a struggle with cnn a little bit because i had written about the poetry of the statement. food stamp president is billion. it is like a whole book of things in three words. he applies them, so he's not releasing it. when you watch the clip, it is the same thing. he says, "well, jun," and he stops. i am talking to some of the of color print the way he does it is so -- he is a mas

and restrictions on the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines was discussed on cnn. candy crowley interviewing the nra president david keene on cnn. >> so no assault weapons ban, no ban on these multi clips. i don't think the white house is going to budge on their push for it, you're not going to budge under pushback. let's talk about the politics. do you think you have enough support on capitol hill to keep an assault weapons ban from happening? >> i think right now we do. you have been watching capitol hill for a long time. when a president takes all the power of his office he is willing to expend political capital, you don't want to make predictions -- you do not want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say the likelihood is they're not going to be allowed to get an assault weapons ban through. >> how about a clip? >> i don't think ultimately they will get that, either, because i don't think you can make a case that you could really regulate it. these things cost virtually nothing. you and david gregory could find them. but the fact is, we live in a situation where first of all we

programs. he was interviewed by cnn possible blitzer. >> are you gandhi is the raising of the debt ceiling as leverage to get from the president? >> i think there's going to be a whole new field of battle with the debt ceiling rolls around. most of us have pledged before we voted in to raise the debt ceiling, even though it may be at political cost, we have to address spending. that means entitlements. we have to sit down to gather and get us back on a path. look, we just added $2.1 trillion in the last increase of the debt ceiling, and spending continues to go up. i think there's going to be a pretty big showdown the next time around. >> juliet schor, that senator john mccain. can you explain the significance of the republican push to raise the retirement age and how are people organizing around this? >> republicans have been trying decades and decades.educe, get it is pretty much a constant. what i think is troubling about the current period, we also have a president now that is put pretty significant concessions and cuts to social security on the table because he has not only offered th
